for a while, and she got great at the debates last summer, then mitt romney in the florida debate, where he obliterated newt gingrich. he got so much credit, that the romney camp let him go. we're going to talk to him, not to push romney or attack the president, whatever, but basically give us a lesson on how you debate and to take a look at clips almost like game tape for the redskins, and say here's where a guy did something good, here's where somebody did something bad and explain what he would tell one of his clients about how you debate. >> it's so important, because for everybody watching, they really got a more clear idea about who these gentlemen are, fair or not fair, i don't know. we're going to leave that up to you to decide. but i must say, that's interesting background, because i think mitt romney came out very strong. i think everybody does agree with that in that debate. >> i'll give you one subtle example, allison, when obama was talking, and they've always got to figure they're on a split screen, because they don't know when the networks will take a split screen, always loo

. mitt romney says you're not counting all the people. it's closer to 11%. that debate will continue. friday was a good day for the president. >> back to the debate, were you surprised at the president's showing? >> yes. i was really stunned at the lack of energy and that romney came out so strong and it did seem like the president was trying to play defense and not make any mistakes because he was up at least in this race pretty handily in the swing states. not mentioning the 47% in that video, that was stunning. >> is it too late and later debates to come back with that now? you know, i liken it to a boxer almost. go back to your corner, you figure out what you didn't do right perhaps. but at that point is it too late? has america forgotten about the 47%? >> no, i don't think so. i think he can do that. not as effectively, because the first debate is usually the more watched debate. president george w. bush had a poor performance against john kerry and came back strong. last night the president was mocking his own performance. you have to accept you didn't do well, and come back an
